Lesson8_card -2  Ka-fu Wong © 2007 ECON1003: Analysis of Economic Data Card experiment We are going to perform an experiment on a deck of 52 cards. Count the actual number of red cards out of 10 trials (with  replacement).  What is the probability of getting a red card on any trial? Hypothesis: p=0.5 Expected value = 0.5 Standard deviation = (0.5*0.5) 1/2  = 0.5
